Michael Zimmer takes Mark Zuckerberg to task – not for allegedly calling people who share information with him “dumb f*cks” but for saying that people who manage their identities lack integrity:

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg has a history of speaking his mind on privacy, and what he speaks is often fraught with problems, ignorance, and arrogance….. But, today, I found a new statement that brings Zuckerberg’s hubris to a new level.

[…]

“Having two identities for yourself is an example of a lack of integrity.”

Wow. And I thought Elliot Schrage’s statement that “Everything is opt-in on Facebook” was going to be the craziest thing I read this week.

According to Zuckerberg, the person responsible for the world’s most popular website for sharing information about oneself, wanting to manage your flows of information in such a way that might present a different version of your “complete” self to your friends, family, co-workers, and more distant friends shows a lack of integrity.

Really.
